too difficult for easily frustrated kids

We bought this for our 5 year old with cerebral palsy - he has great use of one hand, but only limited use of the other, so he needs extra practice with all of these skills! It's cute and each piece is fine on its own, but the design of it being a puzzle where the pieces come out while you're trying to work on them is not good. It's an extra level of difficulty that a child who needs to work on these skills does not need. It's frustrating to him, as well as our 3 year old. I'm gonna have to figure out how to glue them down or something.

This is poorly designed and poorly made. Because each section of puzzle comes out, it is not possible for a child to do many of the activities...tying, for example. Additionally, the poor quality make the tasks very frustrating. The button hole is too small, the zipper does not move, the snap does not close, etc.

Pros: Great useful activities for my almost 3 y/o. Cons: The puzzle design causes my son to pick up the piece which distracts him from completing the activity. Puzzle function, while cool, is not the best.

Much bigger than I thought it would be, since I didn’t notice the measurements. My 2 year old loves it. Keeps him busy.

I agree with previous statement. It should be a puzzle board or activity board, not both. Bits too hard to do the activities when puzzle pieces keep coming out.

Dont like puzzle

Missy - 5 years ago, Verified purchaser
I liked the different things it would teach but once I received it I didnt like that it was a puzzle and the pieces were not sturdy. The pieces would fall off or move so it was hard for my child to try to tie the shoe or zip up the zipper. Had to return.

It's a nice, well made board but it would be perfect if the pieces didn't come out. It would make it easier for a child to lace, unzip and so on. It should be a puzzle or activity board, not both.

Montessori lessons

Mizzlizz - 7 years ago, Verified purchaser
I've been looking for affordable fun learning toys for my granddaughter. I was a Montessori educator so I wanted to be able to incorporate some materials into our play time but all of the lesson materials I've found are super expensive. This is perfect for her- exactly what I was looking for & a GREAT PRICE!
